How's it going Jim-
I just wanted to tell you what a great guitar this is.. It plays wonderful. Very balanced, great sustain, lush tone. Not only is it a fantastic fingerstyle guitar but an excellent flat pick and strumming guitar as well. I have played some high end guitars that exhibit only some of these characteristics!
I played with a thumb pick for quite some time but stopped using it a while ago because when I used the pick while playing my previous acoustic, the tonal qualities of the instrument dissipated drastically- very disappointing. This Jumbo however, retains all of its tonal qualities with or without a pick!
This is a stunning guitar in all respects. Thanks for going the extra mile for me. I really appreciate it!
